Aphelion The Affinity GMS 2020 14.2% 750ml
*2018 Young Gun Winemaker of the Year Award Winner*
A beautiful and crisp savoury edge runs through this wine from aroma to palate. The extended ferment characters appear in the form of spicy meaty complexity whilst the youthful Grenache component keeps the feel fresh and vibrant. Savoury, spicy, complex.
Expert Review:Nick Stock-
94 Points, this has real intensity, depth and expressively vibrant dark berries and red plums. Some blueberries, too. Very exuberant. The palate has a beautifully sleek feel with such fine, long and soft tannins. Sweet darker fruit, driving long and fleshy. Drink or hold.
